A 13-year-old girl is now hospitalized after her mom stabbed her as she was sleeping. Police say DeQuita Hoefling (40) entered her daughter’s bedroom around 1:00am and began to violently stab the child in the neck and back with a knife. Mom stabbed her daughter several times, until the teen was able to break away and ran to her father for help. The girl’s dad rushed her to the hospital and she was treated in the emergency room for her injuries.
As for the mother, no motive was given as to why she would do such a horrible thing to her own daughter. Hoefling was later charged with aggravated murder and was put under a 500,000 bond. (See related video at link below)
